1966 Lincoln Continental

The style of the 1966 Lincoln Continental seems a step backward as the short-lived wraparound turn signals are eliminated. Front and rear wings are extended, making the car longer than ever. The range sees the return of a two-door version, for the first time in six years. The old “430” engine from the Fifties is replaced by a new V-8 of both higher displacement and output.
